This is my own DVD version -- UNofficial, but loaded with goodies.
You can find it as a direct-download here, but please if possible use the torrent and help seed!
High-quality video encoding;
Director's Commentary featuring Nina Paley and Karl Fogel;
Subtitles including English, Spanish, French, German, Russian, Chinese, Dutch and Finnish;
Customized chapter selection screens with screenshot previews - chapters are biased towards the Annette Hanshaw songs (for lack of anything better to base them on);
Full-resolution anamorphic 16x9 video with 16x9 menus;
A few fun easter-eggs.
Please download, help seed, spread the word, and let me know what you think!
This is a remuxing of the 1080p .mp4 version of the movie as originally posted, combining the exact same video with the original uncompressed audio track in FLAC.
That means that as of now, this is the highest possible quality version available. NOTICE: Please use the torrent if you can - it is webseeded by the uploaded version here yet will probably give you better download speeds.
720p AVCHD .iso: Please use the torrent...
This is burnable to one blank DVD, and should play on many blu-ray players including the Playstation 3. (check your player's documentation for the "AVCHD" logo; if it doesn't have it, bug the manufacturer to implement it in a firmware upgrade!) This .iso contains the original 720p video (non-transcoded) as well as original PCM audio.
AVCHD is basically like a blu-ray quality disc but smaller, small enough to fit on a single-layer DVD blank. I've found that the disc is unrecognized in my computer's DVD drive after burning, but it plays in my Panasonic BD35k blu-ray player just beautifully, in full 720p HD.

I was easily able to download and burn the 720 iso version
I'm not a tekkie by any mean but was able to download and burn the 720 on one DVD using free software (Free Easy Burner from Koyote) and plays perfect in my DVD player. But I want to get the version with the Director Commentary and haven't figured out how to do that and burn on a single DVD or even download a version with ONLY the commentary. Any help appreciated. But it is a WONDERFUL film.

played fine on my PS3!
i found myself unable to have the PS3 (unhacked, stock OS)
play either the 720p or 1080p .mp4 files (from the main movie item on archive.org)
i was able to play the 480p on my PS3.
later, i found this item, downloaded and burned the .iso
image to a blank DVD-R and "presto!" worked nicely.
